Advancing Printed Electronics: Exploring CeraPrinter's Multi-Module Approach to Hybrid Materials Deposition

In the ever-evolving landscape of technology, printed electronics has emerged as a transformative force with the potential to revolutionize various industries such as healthcare, energy, sensors, displays, and consumer electronics. This presentation delves into the multifaceted realm of printed electronics, focusing on the pivotal role of Hybrid Additive Materials Deposition in advancing this technology.
A substantial portion of the presentation is dedicated to the innovative multi-module approach employed by the CeraPrinter. By combining the strengths of different printing techniques, we can push the boundaries of what is possible in terms of material compatibility, resolution, and device performance. This approach harnesses the potential of various printing techniques, including various inkjet, Aerosol (pneumatic and ultrasonic), Microdispensing and in-line multi-curing systems, to precisely deposit functional materials on flexible and rigid substrates. The ability to seamlessly switch between different printing techniques within a single platform allows for simultaneous printing, ushering in unprecedented flexibility and efficiency, and a user-centric experience. Additionally, the modular design allows for easy integration of new printing modules, enabling continuous innovation and customization.
In conclusion, through real-world examples and case studies, the successful implementation of the CeraPrinter's multi-module approach in various industrial applications will be demonstrated. Join us in this presentation to learn more about this exciting technology and its implications for the future of printed electronics.

Inks based on cellulosic materials for flexible, conformable and stretchable printed electronics

Electronic devices continue to evolve. Flexible, stretchable, and deformable electronic devices constitute a growing topic of interest for a wide variety of application fields such as in safety, medical, sport or automotive fields. Encres Dubuit is now active in this field by working on the development of innovative bio-based inks specifically designed for printing flexible, conformable and stretchable electronic devices.
These inks, suitable for screen-printing, are based on silver and cellulosic materials. This biobased matrix is interesting thanks to its non-toxicity, its natural abondance and its specific outstanding properties. Regarding ink development, the bio-based matrix helps to disperse and
stabilize active particles. It is also used as a rheological agent to meet the printing processes requirements and acts as an adhesion promoter concerning the interaction with the substrate.
These innovative materials are used to develop stable conductive inks with different scope of application. Flexible transparent conductive inks with high opto-electrical properties without. any sintering have been first developed. Then, to go beyond flexibility, an ongoing project specifically focuses on stretchability by designing a stretchable cellulose-based binder for the ink. This innovative approach tends to develop the next expected generation of inks. The challenge is to maintain the percolation between the active particles within the ink film while minimizing the electrical properties variations under strains applied to printed device.
This stretchable technology of ink could be transposed to other systems including colored pigments or active materials (conductive, sensitive, etc) to confer stretchable features for a wide range of applications.

Development of printed circuits with integrated sensors on flexible foils

Within the process of printing electronics, different printing methods offer a variety of applications. This presentation shows the development of a multi-layered printed circuit with the challenge of integrating rigid pressure sensors on a flexible foil. It focuses on the dispensing and screen printing of the circuit, two methods complementing to each other in the development and production process.

Skin Electrode Adhesive Performance Testing

How to make sure skin electrodes stays attached on the skin and patient monitoring is reliable without disruption from the adhesive detaching from the skin. Skin adhesive testing have many consideration and one biggest is how to evaluate adhesion durability by using an alternative test surface than skin. Testing skin adhesive on human subject brings other clinical study requirements and ethical committee approval to the table. This presentation will explain different testing methods to evaluate the skin adhesive performance mechanically on laboratory test setting and as well on human skin.

TRAQC
In-Line, At-Speed Quality Assurance for Printed Electronics

Currently, print conductivity is typically measured at the end of production with physical probes, which is the most common quality control tool in printed electronics facilities today. These probes are broadly used to test both the printing process and the final devices but are slow and potentially damaging to the ink. Camera inspection systems are common in the graphic printing field, and work at the speed of the production line, but do not measure the functional properties of the ink. We will discuss the current needs and open problems in printed electronics quality control and present a solution in TRAQC. The TRAQC system is able to run at the speed of the production and is able to extract ink functionality (conductivity) and geometrical variation (spreading/stretching), the key parameters for electronics printing, in-line and at-speed.

Printing RFID Tags using Revolutionary Copper Ink on Paper

With nearly 28 billion RFID tags sold in 2021 and a yearly growth of 36%, the sheer volume of these tags will result in significant environmental challenges, due to the wasteful and resource intensive nature of current production methods. At Voltera, we set out to additively print an RFID tag using copper nano ink on paper, resulting in a compostable RFID tag that created no copper waste or toxic chemical byproducts from the production process.
